Overview

How long will you stay in the game?

The last thing Kei and Masaru remember was being struck dead by a subway train while saving the life of a drunken bum. What a waste! And yet somehow they’re still...alive? Or semi-alive? Maybe it’s reanimated... by some kind of alien orb with a nasty message... "Your lives are over. What you do with your new lives is up to me!" And what this orb called ‘Gantz’ intends to do with their lives is make them play games of death, hunting all kinds of odd aliens, along with a bunch of other ordinary citizens who’ve recently met a tragic semi-end. The missions they embark upon are often dangerous. Many die — and die again!

This dark and action-packed manga deals with the moral conflicts of violence, coupled with teenage sexual confusion and angst, and with our fascination with death. Hang onto your gear and keep playing the game, whatever you do; Gantz is unrelenting!

    A very different manga

    This is quite different from what I had expected. The art is very sterile. It is very clean and mechanical. The art does allow for a lot of details.I was intrigued by the story, but it was a little hard to understand parts of it, and how it all fits together. This is the first volume I have read. I am certainly entertained enough to buy more of this series. I hope the idea behind the room full of people that materialize will become more clear.

    A reviewer

    I've been reading this series for a while now, not to mention watching the anime. I'm glad I can finally invest in the manga since it's in English. It's a tough start to begin with, but once you get past the first few volumes, you're going to be hooked and the pace is going to speed up quickly. This is definitely one of the best mangas I've read in a while.
